Annual Report 2023


Solutions for a sustainable future

Commitment, innovation, and teamwork are crucial to our success in the area of sustainability. We have developed a robust sustainability strategy that includes a number of ambitious targets. Over the course of 2023, we worked consistently on implementing these goals and systematically put them into practice. In doing so, we once again made groundbreaking decisions on various topics and processes, which led to measurable results and improvements. 


Scope 1 and 2 CO2-emission reduction
compared to 2019


Share of electricity from renewable sources


Reduction in global workplace accident rate compared to 2019


We have made a clear commitment to sustainability as one of our five strategic goals. The entire Company is committed to our strong sustainability policy, with its ambitious targets, measurable KPIs and clear deadlines, which we published at the end of 2020. 

At Gerresheimer, the clear alignment and incorporation of our sustainability targets into every aspect of the organization is the key to breathing life into our sustainability policy. 

Our commitment and our success have been recognized and honored by external, independent bodies. We received the EcoVadis Gold award once again this year, representing a milestone in the successful implementation of our sustainability strategy. We are proud of this recognition. We were also nominated for the German Sustainability Award. We view all of these honors and nominations and as clear signs that we are following the right path.

In order to be sustainable, we need to actively accept responsibility for the environmental and social impact of our business. This means questioning the status quo and rethinking what we do. In this sense, we view sustainability and innovation as one and the same. We take a long, hard look at our internal processes, technologies, and the products and solutions we develop to improve them on an ongoing basis with regard to a variety of factors, including sustainability. 

When it comes to innovation, our employees are the key drivers. We received numerous innovative ideas and case studies on the topic of saving energy as part of our global Energy Savings Campaign in 2022. Some ideas already became reality in 2023. The tremendous response to the campaign throughout the entire Gerresheimer Group further reflects the awareness, dedication, and responsibility felt by our employees toward the topic of sustainability. We are very proud to share the same sustainable values around the globe.
